This is given in the question to be \$125,000 S2: Next, add to this the value of new finished goods (NFG) whose manufacturing was completed during the year by converting work in progress. This is NOT directly given in the question, but must be computed from the information given.

Some finished goods remained unsold at the end of the year and were in inventory (EIFG.) This is given in the question to be \$175,000 and must be subtracted from S3, what could have been sold.
